Fall of Saraqeb first major reversal for Syria n regime in a Russian-backed Idlib offensive

Saraqeb is at the juncture of two main roads linking the capital of Damascus and its second-largest city of Aleppo and another highway west to the Mediterranean.

Saraqeb is at the juncture of two main roads linking Damascus and its second-largest city of Aleppo and another highway west to the Mediterranean. The loss of Saraqeb would be the first major reverse for the Syrian regime in a Russian-backed offensive that had made swift gains. Turkey has sent thousands of troops and heavy military hardware into Syria's Idlib region in an unprecedented move to back the opposition and rebel groups against the offensive by Bashar al Assad's forces. Artillery fire by the Assad regime killed at least four civilians, including three children, in Idlib, White Helmets said on Thursday. On Wednesday, opposition forces took the village of Nairab in Saraqeb – also a gateway into the embattled Idlib ­– after an operation started at midday against terror groups, regime forces, and Russian warplanes. Earlier, two Turkish soldiers were killed and two others wounded in a Bashar al Assad regime attack in Idlib, Turkey's National Defense Ministry said. Turkey retaliated with full force and "neutralised 114 regime elements", the ministry said in a series of tweets. The regime and its allies intensified air and land attacks on civilian settlements in the region. Idlib, near Turkey's southern border, falls within a de-escalation zone laid out in a deal between Turkey and Russia in late 2018. The Syrian regime and its allies have consistently broken the terms of the ceasefire, launching frequent attacks inside the territory. The Russia-backed Assad regime's renewed assault on Idlib since December has displaced nearly one million Syrians. Most of the Idlib refugees have moved towards the Turkish border in recent months, exacerbating the humanitarian crisis. Source: TRTWorld and agencies Read more: TRT World

Syrian Children Freeze to Death. Bombs Rain Down. And ‘Nobody Cares.’“I dream about being warm,” said a Syria n father whose baby froze to death. “I just want my children to feel warm. I don’t want to lose them to the cold. I don’t want anything except a house with windows that keeps out the cold and the wind.” What about the kids who died in Mosul? Terribly sad world we live in. When will there be peace. I just couldn’t read the rest of the quote, it’s just painful. 💔💔💔💔 Syria
